Twenty-five Royal Turtles have settled into their new home at the Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity (ACCB) in Siem Reap. This move creates a second captive population after 206 turtles were moved to the Koh Kong Reptile Conservation Centre in Mondul Seima district of Koh Kong Province in September.
“Previously, I was not aware of the importance of wildlife, and its protection. What I knew was wildlife could provide food for my family or be sold for cash. I used to poach wildlife, such as Red Muntjac, Wild Pig, monitor lizards, and birds for food and sale,” said Neil, a former poacher.
WCS in partnership with the Fisheries Administration (FiA) announced today that it is transferring 206 of Cambodia’s national reptiles—known as Royal Turtles—to a new purpose-built breeding and conservation center in Mondol Seima district of Koh Kong province. The new facility will be named the Koh Kong Reptile Conservation Centre.
